Everyone Belongs here.jpg

Alameda Science and Technology Institute (ASTI) is a small, Early College High School (ECHS) with a community of staff, students, and parents/guardians who are all focused on the shared goal of college-readiness. We believe that high school students can develop content understanding and the academic maturity level required to succeed in college courses while still enrolled in high school. We are proud to be part of the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) and are privileged to be partnered with the College of Alameda (COA) and Peralta Community College District (PCCD). Our program is committed to ensure ALL students, especially those who are underrepresented, are provided the resources to attain a college degree from the institution of their choice and become responsible, proactive, and empowered global citizens with a life-long love of learning.

The TOY DRIVE is now in full swing, and we’re trying something new this year. In previous years, we’ve struggled to fill the box with toys.  This year, we’d like to try an idea that Ms. Krasky came up with. If you’d like to help fill the box but are too busy to shop, we have a cash donations jar for toys in the office.  Stop by and drop in some money and we will use it to buy toys for the box. If we collect $1 per student then we will be able to buy a generous donation of toys for the box.  Of course, you can also bring in new unwrapped toys for the box. Please donate what you can!  

 

Seniors:  Make sure you use your resources on the SRA Hub!  The college advisers on the Hub are available to answer application questions & review UC Personal Insight Questions (with advance notice).  Advisers will not be available to review Insight Questions or answer application questions November 23rd or the 24th.

 

As Thanksgiving and the winter holidays are approaching, ASTI's annual food drive is taking place! Donate any of your canned food to help the Alameda Food Bank satisfy the increased amount of food for the holidays! You can donate any type of non-perishable such as dried pasta, canned beans, cake mix, and etc. Also, please do not donate any expired food! As a reward for your generosity, the class that brings in the most amount of food will be awarded a hot chocolate party with desserts! So start filling up those food barrels! Food Barrels are located in:

Seniors: Mr. Rod's Room
Juniors: Ms. McCoy's Room
Sophomores: Ms. Ali's Room

Freshmen: Ms. Campbell's Room

"Beyond Everyone Belongs Here" Workshop – TONIGHT November 15thRecent anti-Semitic and racist incidents in our community have led parents/guardians to ask what AUSD is doing to teach anti-bullying, track hate incidents, and create positive school climates. This workshop will give AUSD families a chance to hear about AUSD’s approach to promoting inclusion, as well as brainstorm solutions to this growing local and national problem. The forum will be held on Wednesday, November 15th from 6:30pm – 8:30pm in the Alameda High School Cafeteria. 

 

10th graders who wish to take a college course in the spring must have at least a 3.0 ASTI GPA.  Taking a college class curing the 10th grade is not required or recommended by ASTI.  High school coursework should be prioritized.  10th graders may not take more than one course during the spring 2017 semester, and a college course must not conflict with ASTI classes.  If you are a 10th grader registering for a Spring 2017 class and are not presently taking a Fall 2017 college class, you must submit a new application to COA at cccapply.org.

 

All students registering for a college class Spring 2017:  You must all complete online orientation with COA in order to register.  Failure to complete orientation will place a hold on your account and you will not be allowed to register until you have completed the orientation.  Complete orientation at:  http://alameda.peralta.edu/orientation/online-orientation/

The person who writes the most words by the end of the month will win a fun prize!  So remember that November is not only important for UC and CSU apps, but also NaNoWriMo! See you there!

Spring 2017 College Registration Information:

ASTI’s college registration date is Friday, December 1st.  The Spring 2017 schedule of classes is available at passport.peralta.edu.  Seniors must turn in concurrent enrollment forms & spring schedule planners to Ms. Jurkovich next Monday, November 6th by 3pm.  Juniors must turn in concurrent enrollment forms & schedule planners to Ms. Jurkovich by Tuesday, November 7th at 3:00pm.  Concurrent enrollment forms and schedule planners are available at the front of the office and will be emailed over School Loop.  Students who turn in forms after their deadline will be placed at the back of the enrollment line for their class.  If students plan to register for a course that has a prerequisite (all math, English, and most science courses), students must attach a sticky note to their form with the class they are enrolling in and how they have met the prerequisite. For example, if you plan to take English 5 Spring, you would write “English 5—met prereq with English 1A Fall 2017” or “Biology 1A—Chemistry 1A complete Summer 2017.”  If you need a prerequisite cleared, and do not write it on a sticky note, your registration will be significantly delayed.  If you plan to take an intersession course, this must be submitted on a separate concurrent enrollment form for the Fall term.  Winter intersession adds to fall units—if you go over 11 units, you will be charged per unit fees that ASTI cannot cover.

 

10th graders who wish to take a college course in the spring must have at least a 3.0 ASTI GPA.  Taking a college class curing the 10th grade is not required or recommended by ASTI.  High school coursework should be prioritized.  10th graders may not take more than one course during the spring 2017 semester, and a college course must not conflict with ASTI classes.  If you are a 10th grader registering for a Spring 2017 class and are not presently taking a Fall 2017 college class, you must submit a new application to COA at cccapply.org.

 

All students registering for a college class Spring 2017:  You must all complete online orientation with COA in order to register.  Failure to complete orientation will place a hold on your account and you will not be allowed to register until you have completed the orientation.  Complete orientation at:  http://alameda.peralta.edu/orientation/online-orientation/

Students, you need to use your own network log in to use the printer in the office.  A number of you have been using classmate's log ins to access lab computers-- this will not be an option for the office computer.  If you forgot your password, please see Ms. Krasky to have it reset.

Spanish translation will be available.

 

Sophomores:  Sophomore Family Info Night will be held tomorrow night Thursday, November 2nd at 6:00pm in Room D-237 at COA.  All 10th graders and a parent/guardian should attend to learn important information about preparing for four year college admissions, and the transition to full time community college students next year.  It’s important that all 10th graders prioritize their attendance at this event.  Chinese translation will be available for families at all information nights this year.
